Muscat—Businesses are facing a challenge they would not have dreamed of over a year ago—that of coping and keeping up with the rapidly changing business landscape as a result of COVID-19.

Responding to the need to inform businesses and uphold its commitment to continue to provide useful, relevant, insightful, and practical information about developments, trends, innovations to the industries it serves, Omanexpo will host its first webinar “Steering a Business through COVID-19” from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on April 20.

The interactive webinar will feature talks from Dr. Fatma Al Yaqoubi, Head of TB and Acute Respiratory Diseases Section, Directorate General for Disease Surveillance and Control, Oman Ministry of Health; Dr. Marie-Louise Van Eck, Regional Medical Director, International SOS; Mohamed Nayaz, Partner, Africa, India & Middle East (AIM) Advisory Services, MENA leader for Resilience Services, Ernst & Young (EY); and Craig Ceppetelli, Executive Director (Interim), Office of International Collaboration, Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and will culminate with Q&A sessions after each presentation.

The speakers will share insights on how to mitigate COVID-19 risks within workspaces; mental health and resilience during a pandemic; and strengthening business continuity and resilience to disruptive events in the MENA region, among others.

Ashley Roberts, Acting General Manager and Portfolio Director of Omanexpo, says “As an exhibition and conferences organiser, we need to continue to innovate and adapt to the current restrictions on hosting mass gatherings by using virtual platforms to enable us to continue to play our role in delivering meaningful events for our customers and markets.”

“We are offering this platform to create new opportunities to facilitate discussion, share ideas and knowledge while providing continuity for businesses and industries. We will also be offering  services for companies who need to organise their own webinars,” he adds.

The webinar is supported by the Oman Ministry of Health, Ernst & Young (EY) and International SOS.
